There are two ways to play Genshin Impact on a Mac: either by installing Windows 10 for free on your Mac using Boot Camp or by using the Bluestacks Android emulator.
We recommend installing Windows rather than Bluestacks to play Genshin Impact because it allows you to play the full Windows versions whereas Bluestacks only supports the mobile Android version.
Genshin Impact is a free open-world action RPG developed by miHoYo. The game features a huge map, elaborate elemental combat system, engaging storyline & characters, co-op gaming mode, mellow soundtrack and much more.
However, in the case of Genshin Impact, using a virtual machine to play it on a Mac doesn’t work well due to the demands of the game.
Here then are the best ways to play Genshin Impact on a Mac.
Boot Camp allows you to install Windows on a separate partition of the your Mac hard drive.
This enables you to boot your Mac in either Windows or macOS whenever you want. It also allows your Mac to dedicate all of its resources to running highly demanding games like Genshin Impact.
To install Genshin Impact on your Mac, follow these instructions to install Windows 10 for free on your Mac.
When you’ve installed Windows on your Mac, you then simply download the Windows Genshin Impact launcher to start the game.
The other way to play Genshin Impact on a Mac is to use the Bluestacks Android Emulator. However, this only allows you to play the Android version of Genshin Impact on your Mac, not the Windows version.
Bluestacks is free to use and allows you to play any Android mobile game on macOS. You simply download the Bluestacks emulator onto macOS and then download Genshin Impact from the Google Play store.
